Question: I entered the U.S. using a K-1 visa. now I do not want to marry my fiancee. Is there some other way I can still get a green card?
Answer: Foreign nationals who enter the U.S. on a K-1 or K-3 “fiancee” visa cannot change status to another nonimmigrant status. They also are not eligible to apply to become Permanent Residents other than through marriage to their U.S. citizen fiancee or spouse. So your options are to marry your fiancee or leave the U.S. If you chose not to marry your fiancee and you remain in the U.S. beyond the 90 day period on your I-94, you will be out of status and unlawfully present.
